My first reaction (at least today) is that it's a bad idea.
In order to produce optimal^H^H^H^H^H^Hacceptable results with as many
browsers as possible, the CSS is pretty finely tuned. Changes (at least
the default CSS's) really should be tested using as many browsers as
before being accepted.
Having (anonymous) user editable CSS seems like a really bad idea to me.
(A nasty guy could hide text, etc... --- who knows what really.)
Having admin-editable CSS would be okay, I guess --- but really: why
not just edit the file?
Now, if a user were allowed to edit only the CSS he sees (this would
be like a user preference), I guess that would be okay. But it could
be dreadfully confusing... Allowing the user to specify alternate
style sheets (of his own choosing) is probably a more reasonable solution.
